Description: BELLIN, JACQUES NICOLAS. Plan du Port et de la Ville de Nangasaki. Engraved folding map, 205x355 mm, ample margins; hand-colored; matted. Paris, circa 1763

Notes: Appears to be a derivative of a map originally published in Charleviox's Histoire et Description Générale du Japon. "No. 3. Tome X. page 533" appears in the bottom right corner of the map, suggesting that it was probably issued for use in Prévost's Histoire Générale des Voyages. It probably dates from the late 1740s to early 1750s. A similar map with similar dimensions was issued in 1763 in Bellin's Petit Atlas François, but with an altered cartouche and some font changes.
